Trivia

Cary Grant involved himself in many details of the production. For a scene that took place in his character's library, he arrived to work with boxes of items from the library in his own house and placed them about the set. According to Doris Day, this served not only to make the set more attractive but also made him feel more relaxed and at home, giving his performance "that peculiarly natural, suave quality that is the hallmark of his pictures."

Quotes

Roger: Good morning, good morning. It's a great day out.
Philip Shayne: God, you're very happy, Roger. You'd better check that with Dr. Gruber, it might be something serious.
Roger: I had a wonderful night's rest. You know the trouble I have sleeping? Well, I've solved it. Just before you go to bed you put three tranquilizers in a jigger of brandy and you drink it. You still can't sleep but you're so relaxed that you don't worry about it. It was exhilarating.
Philip Shayne: Fancy that. And some people just go to sleep and never know what...

One of the very best!
18 May 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

People complaining of the dumb/dated plot need to remember that this film is one of a genre and that films of that genre all have the same basic plot. Don't go into it expecting to find something else; allow yourself to accept the basic premise. This is one of THE best of the perpetual-virgin genre, and of course Day was the leading star of same. The script sparkles and the supporting players really add to the total package. John Astin is delightfully smarmy as the cheapskate lothario ("Muscatel, for my lady's pleasure") and John Fiedler is the ultimate mama's boy. Gig Young is unforgettable. Enjoy this fantastically silly movie!
